Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

I’m 27 years old, what am I gonna commit my life to? I’ve been teaching English since I was 21 and have certainly lost passion for that. Maybe if I didn’t feel so goddamn tired all of the time.

World Peace Program? Philanthropy? I have a family back in Canada to worry about. I need to make some cold hard cash so my Mom and Den, GP and Dot can retire! So my niece and nephew have a solid and healthy upbringing. That’s on my shoulders.

Business? I shudder at the very thought of it. Following market fluctuations and stock prices. Running my own business would be great, but I have 0 work ethic at the moment.

China has allowed me to become entirely lazy both physically and mentally. I have to shape up.

Well, Japan came up first on my list. I know for a fact that I’d be happier being a line cook in Japan, than being rich in China. Never have I been so happy in my recent years than alone in Japan. The amount of energy and creativity that sprung out of me was unreal. I have always been drawn to Japan, almost like an energy. Not the novelties and reasons most foreigners like Japan. I feel a sacred connection with the place. Weird, huh?

Well, let’s start there. Jobs in Japan maybe. I’ll keep ya posted.



TOOLS

I’m off this Friday so this is the day I will use to create an ultimate goal program.

1. USB
2. Personal Power II, Goal Setting Workshop
3. Paper and pens

I’ll turn off my phone, clean my apartment, open the windows, vow to quit smoking and drinking beforehand, get hyped up on coffee, get into peak state, then ROCK AND ROLL!



The Ultimate Success Formula

1) KNOW YOUR OUTCOME. Precisely define what you want

2) TAKE ACTION

3) Develop sensory acuity to recognize the kind of responses you’re getting. Are you getting closer to your goals? Or further away?

4) Develop flexibility to change your approach if you’re not getting closer to your outcome.
